Eyeshield 21 – The once famous American Football Manga!

This is a brief introduction to the once-popular American football manga- a sport that easily reminds people of muscle and violence, but through the plot by Riichiro Inagaki and Illustrated by Yusuke Murata, you will see the world of American football that is both thrilling and tactical.

The manga has an adaptation, but I personally don’t rate the Anime very high, so if you can, I still encourage you to read the manga.

Synopsis

Eyeshield 21 manga revolves around Sena and Deimon High’s American football team: humiliating defeats, arduous practice sessions, turn-arounds with formidable opponents, special team combos. colors, unexpected tactics, etc. Yes, enough elements to make a great sports manga, although the motif is quite similar to other sports series of the same genre. Initially, the story has quite a lot of humorous elements, but later on, the humorous elements are replaced by dramatic details and unique tactics. Eyeshield 21 can be considered an extremely interesting and worth-watching american football manga

This is the most mysterious character of the story, an almighty character beyond understanding for a high school student when out on the field and a strategist of the Deimon football team, making football matches with extreme tension tactics. He appears with a strange appearance, looking quite like a devil – personally I think he is quite the same as the mascot of the Deimon high school team (Deimon is quite similar to daemon *n – devil in Japanese. The team’s statue is also a bat.)

This is an extremely interesting and unpredictable character, the big “brother” of the Deimon school football team.
